The closing of the schools for the
summer vacation, suggests the cap
tion of this article as a text for the
Philadelphia Ledger to predicate
some ver3r sensible remarks upon.
It says the review and examination
are supposed to exhibit the progress
made, and the average result is usu
ally accepted as satisfactory to all
concerned. It is perhaps a trifle
early to be thinking of the next
term and its exercises ; yet ambi
tious pupils and conscientious teach
ers may spare, even in vacation, a
thought upon what is the main con
cern of their lives. The examina
tions are suggestive ; and it may be
worth while for the scholars to in
quire. "What do we really know?"
The teachers may ask "What have
we really taught?'
Memory is a powerful faculty, and
is capable, upon uncommon and ur
gent occasions, of being crowded up
to extraordinary performances. Es
pecially is this the case at examina
tion times. The multiplicity of text
books, in all departments, from the
primary upwards, covers a larger va
riety of subjects t!an our grand-parents
ever thought of, and the rapid
ity and correctness of the answers
of the majority of pupils is really
something wonderful. But ques
tions not in the examination routine
remain still to be answered : and
those questions are stated above.
In arothcr form the inquiry may be
stated : How much of all this ap
parent proficiency is mere mechani
cal or rote work, not founded on ac
tual knowledge? How much is the
product of the weary work of mem
orizing, with no expectation of being
retained for any purpose beyond
that of passing a successful examin
The familiar word cramming"'
suggests itself to all who have had
experience in examination or in
being examined. School books are
collections of results worked out and
presented to the learner, not so much
as aids to learning as to be mem
orized as knowledge. Too main'
branches are attempted at once to
permit thoroughness in anv. Teach-
I C mf
era rely too much upon the text
books, and pupils are encouraged in
a parrot-like performance, which dis
penses with substance provided the
words be correct. Let any adult try
to read a book which is full of ill
understood, unfamiliar and technical
expressions, and how many ideas
will he gather from it? If he is re
solved to master the subject, and
commits the "unknown tongue" to
memory, what has he gained, except
increased labor? New let him turn
to some one who is really versed in
the subject, and who can present it
to him in intelligible, though per
haps redundant expressions, strictly
considered, and he will learn more
in half an hour than he could from
the book in a week.
The great qualities for teachers
are thorough knowledge of the sub
ject they undertake, and a capacity
to impart their knowledge to their
pupils ; in other words, to interpret
to young minds the information
which the text look must necessarily
present in a condensed and contract
ed form. If, in every school, a por
tion of the time now required for
study, that is to say, as is usually
understood, mere memorising, were
occupied by familiar conversational
lectures, explanations and "helps
over hard places," the result might
not be so showy, but would be much
more practical, useful and permanent.

We are asked a dozen times a day

Some contend that it is : others die

A drunken fell, w got kicked out
of a saloon in IJattlc Creek, Michi

It is asserted that owing to the
careless changing of two labels by a

Counterfeit and "Genuine" Paper
Tbe iioston Tra alter says; Coun
terfeit paper dimes are in circulation.
What's the ditl'ereuce between a
counterfeit dime and a genuine dime?
You can't get cash for one and you
can't get cash for the other. So
there is no difference. The counter
feiter will not redeem his paper, and
Government will not redeem its pa
per. 'Tis much of a muchness, both
kinds of paper being worthless.
There is a sort of belief that the
Government paper will be redeemed,
though it rests upon nothing but
hope, that most deceiving of all de
ceivers. It is probable that but a
small part of our smaller currency
ever will be converted into cash, as
much of it will be lost, in various
ways by wearing out, by being drop
ped and trampeled upon or blown
away, by being burned, and by being
pronounced counterfeit when it is
genuine. All this will be gained by
(iovernment, and it will be lost by
the poorest members of the working
classes, for whose sufferings neither
governments nor politicians care any
thing. Had any regard been paid to
the welfare of those classes, and had
justice been done, all our small cur
rency would have disappeared six
years ago. Its existence is a reflec
tion on the country's sanity, and in
every way it is a calamity.
The Use of llstern Water.
The Gallatin Examiner has this
to say about the use cistern water :
"We have often called the at
tention of our citizens to what we
regard as a well settled fact that
those who habitually use cistern
water are nearly, if not entirely
exempt from attacks of cholera.
All the experience and information
that we have leads us to this con
clusion. During the prevalence of
the epidemic in Nashville in 1840-50
it was often remarked. During
the present visitation, although
it is raging in Nashville, Edgefield
is exempt from its ravages, and we
understand that not a single case
has originated there, although a
few have died there who contracted
it in Nashville. We learn, also, that
there is like experience in Memphis."
An uncomfortable paper for the
Administration is the New York
Sun. It continues to probe and
expose the ulcers and sore spots in
the rhinoceros-hide of "the party"
ami its model President ; and the
damaging character of its para
agraphs on the President's personal
habits and his avarice, is derived
from the fact that the truth of the alle
gations cannot well be denied. The
Sun occasionally returns to a favor
ite "sore spot" in the history of the
"Assistant Secretary of State," and
speaks of "the evidence published
by the Legislature of Massachusetts,
proving that Mr. Bancroft Davis,
when director and counsel of the
Erie Railway Company, took a $00,
000 bribe to betray that company
in a contract with another railroad."
What if he is a bribe taker? asks

Dr. Frank A. Ramsey publishes a
communication in the Knoxville
Chronicle, in reference to cholera.
We are not the least interested as to
the name of the disease, but the
communication contains one remark
sensible and important enough to be
printed in every paper in the coun
try. The Doctor says :
"Winter is the time to cleanse a
town. Just now every shovel of dirt
uncovered to the sun is a focus from
which disease eminates. Cover the

sary, let foundation, building and

From the Athena Post.
We don't quote the following from
the Memphis Appeal because we ap
prove the use of such language in
reference to a respectable gentleman
who holds a high position in the ser
vice of the State, but rather to let
our readers see what a prominent
West Tennessee journal has to say
about a Senator who owes his eleva
tion to We3t Tennessee votes and
influence. The Appeal says :
Cooper has filled his seat for two
years and has been as dumb as an
oyster. He sits erect in his seat
like a block of wood, but his head
seems to be as devoid of brains as
the boots upon his feet. No man in
the United States Senate ever made
such a barren and empty record.
He is as stolid as Vinnie Ream's
statute of Lincoln, and as useless as
Beau Hickman. He debates noth
ing, proposes nothing, and is as in
consequential in all things as the
cushioned chair on which he lazily
wastes his worthless life. In order
to show his poverty-stricken charac
ter, and the utter want of ability, we
intend to sift the chaff of the Con
gressional debates to see how many
grains of wheat we can winnow from
The Knoxville Chronicle copies
this paragraph from the Appeal and
"This is the man taken up to beat
Andy Johnson, because Andy had
been loyal to the Government."
Ain't the Chronicle slightly at
fault in its deduction? Wasn't Mr.
Cooper just as loyal to the Govern
ment as Mr. Johnson or any other
man? And didn't that good man
and invincible patriot, Brownlow,
while Governor, appoint Mr. Cooper
to a judgeship? If we are wrong
here we would like to be corrected.
Mr. Johnson was defeated through
the defection of some his "loyal"
friends and the bad management of
others of them. That's what ailed

A movement has been initiated in
Louisiana by Gen. Beauregard and
other leading Conservatives having
in view the harmony and concert of
action between the two races. The
Republicans suspect the movement
and the Conservatives appear to be
bewildered. The resolutions to
which Gen. Beauregard's name is ap
pended are said to be the strongest
yet put forth from any conservative
quarter, and almost smack at social
equality. They contemplate "the
unification" of the people of Louis
iana, "of whatever race, color or re
ligion," the common right of all to
frequeut all places of public resort,
to travel in all public conveyances
on terms of equality, etc., and of
fices of trust and emolument are to
be distributed equally. This seems
to us to be putting the bottom rail
on top, but then it is said to be the
only way the carpet-bag thieves can
be put down.
Shad in The Uolston.
Major R. Ilaller, conductor on the
Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio Rail
road, distributed a large number of
newly-hatched shad in the rivers
along the line of the road Tuesday,
and some of them were put in the
river here. Should the experiment
to acclimate this popular fish to our
waters succeed, as we hope it may,
it will be a most important achieve
ment, and will be followed with the
introduction of salmon, pike and
other good fish. Marion ( Fa.) Patriot.
We learn from Mr. John Miller, of
Flat Gap, Hawkins county, that his
neighborhood was thrown into con
siderable excitement, on Saturday
before last, caused by a little son of
Jesse Mills, Esq., wandering off in

Every one in the neighborhood turn
ed out to search and on Sunday eve
nina the little fellow was found
about five miles from home. Of
course there was more rejoicing over
the return of that little sheep than
all the rest of the family that was
safely housed at home.

A Michigan Humorist.
Detroit has what it calls a funny
man. An old man named Grerr.
who mends furniture for a living, was
sitting in his shop recently, when a
stranger entered and asked the loan
of a dollar. Gregg was startled by
the impudence of the request, and
the stranger began laughing uproar
iously and shut and lxlted the door.
The stranger then took off his coat,
rolled up his sleeves and stepped up
and seized Gregg by the hair and
lifted him up a foot or so. Gregg
attempted to call in the police, but
the funny man seized him by the
throat and nearly choked him to
death. "Why don't you laugh?"
said the stranger, saying which he
began to twig his nose. A stair-rod
then came into requisition, Gregg
being constantly requested to laugh.
Seeing that his life was in danger he
did laugh, but it was not a hearty
laugh, and according the stranger
began hitting at his feet with a
hatchet. A pair of shears were then
procured, and the man began cutting
off his hair, until his victim was left
bald. He then cut off the man's
whiskers and tickled his feet with an
old curiycomb, threatening to stab
Gregg if he made any alarm. Grow
ing tired at last, the stranger said he
guessed he would go. He was not
in need of any money, he said, but
he liked to meet a man who could
appreciate fun. and he went out.
The carpenter was alive at last ac
counts, but the funny man is still at
large. It is thought that the case is
one of emotional insanity.
The Funding Dill.
The funding bill passed by our re
cent Leaislature is receiving the un
mistakable condemnation of the peo
ple from all quarters, and in a lan
guage that cannot be misunderstood
or misinterpreted. There was a pub
lic meeting held in Shelbyville on
the 2d ult., which was composed of
the best citizens of Bedford county,
irrespective of party affiliations, and
they gave expression to their feel
ings in a language that is as plain
as English can make it. The follow
ing is a part of the proceedings of
that meeting :

selves, whether properly or improp
erly, but for our real or imaginary
present wants. But we will pa'
both principle and interest as fast as
we can in justice to ourselves and
duty to our children.
Resolved, That we believe an ex
tra session of the Legislature has
become a necessity, through the
failure of the assessment law, to
meet the expectation of its authors,
we therefore pray his Excellency,
Governor Brown, to assemble the
same at an early day, calling atten

these resolutions. .
There has been but little, if any
abatement of this disease, at Nash
ville, since our last issue. The num
ber of deaths have ranged from twenty-five
to fort3T-odd per day. Our
latest advices are to the effect that
the disease is more fully under the
control of the physicians than at

entertained of its disappearance at
